To the editor:

I’m disgusted and appalled after reading “Jaws” by Benoit Denizet-Lewis (November 1). Michael, the owner of several pit bulls that he raises specifically for dogfighting, states “the tougher your dog is, the tougher you feel” and “it’s a status thing. The bigger the dog you have, the more dogs he’s killed, the more of a man you are.” Well, considering the tale of his dogs Apollo and Sam, Michael is one tough hunk of a man, albeit with a small penis. Get a grip.
